  2. Christ of the Abyss

    Christ of the Abyss refers to a number of bronze sculptures of Jesus Christ submerged in water. The original sculpture, “Il Cristo degli Abissi” is in the Mediterranean Sea off San Fruttuoso between Camogli and Portofino on the Italian Riviera. It was placed in the water on 22 August 1954 at approximately 17 m depth, and stands 2.5 m (8.5 ft) tall. “Il Cristo degli Abissi” was created by Guido Galletti after an idea of Italian swimmer / diver Duilio Marcante. The statue was placed near the spot where Dario Gonzatti died in 1947. He was the first Italian to use SCUBA gear. The statue depicts Christ in a pose offering a blessing of peace. His hands and head are raised toward the surface.
